Rockledge, FL, June 15, 2017 — Always exploring new applications for their innovative EVA non-skid products, SeaDek is excited to be a supplier for NASA’s recently unveiled Mars Rover concept vehicle. Designed and built by Parker Brothers Concepts—best known for their futuristic concept vehicles such as the Tron Bike from ‘Tron: Legacy’ and the Batmobile from ‘The Dark Knight’—the rover is sleek and rugged, designed to tackle the harsh terrain of the martian environment.
At 28 feet long, 14 feet wide, and 11 feet tall, the Mars Rover features six off road air-less wheels with SeaDek nonskid on the spokes, as well as a laboratory in the rear of the vehicle to conduct research and experiments. SeaDek was utilized throughout the interior of the rover, providing traction in what would likely be hazardous conditions, as well as padding to protect astronauts inside the vehicle during turbulent passages.
While the concept vehicle won’t be making a trip to the red planet, it will be touring the East Coast as part of NASA’s “Summer of Mars” campaign. After its recent unveiling at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor’s Complex, the rover currently resides on display before the tour.
